Abstract
This article deals with the measurement of electric current in the energy via optical fibers. Nowadays, the measurement of the electrical current by using optical fiber most commonly based on the principle of Faraday effects, thus the magneto-optic effect. FOCS (Fiber-Optic Current Sensor) is very accurate, modular and easy to install. Another advantage is the isolation of the measuring part from the primary technology, which is sensed. Optical fibers can also be used to measure the inside of the transformer. It also offers the possibility of measuring the temperature of winding. The main contribution of the paper is to summarize the results to date, approaches and basic principles leading to the analysis and to defining the electrical values such as electrical current using fiber optic technology.
Keywords: Fiber-Optic Technology, Electrical Current, Measurement, Current Sensor, Magneto-Optic Effect
